A while ago I heard about encrypting folders with your “secret” files or important files in a simple JPG picture, but I wasn’t curious enough about it . Well! until today, when I was thinking about my next tutorial or post and this subject on “How To Encrypt Your important Files in a JPG Picture ” came in my head .Ok now you know why I am writing this article, but how could we do it?  .
it’s actually very simple so lets start .

  • Requirement :  
  1. Pictures Editor : “Paint” for example.
  2. Winrar : DOWNLOAD.
  3.   A simple line which you will type in CMD.
  • Steps :

 1- Open Paint or photoshop and  create a picture then save it as jpg file with the name lokendra (so your final product will be lokendra.jpg) in your desktop.

 

 


 2- Create a new folder in your desktop and rename it “me”.

 

 

3- Place all your secret or important file in “me” folder.

4-Compress “me” folder with winrar  (final result will be me.rar)

 


5-Open CMD 

 

6-Type cd desktop and press Enter button

7- Type  copy /b lokendra.jpg+me.rar new.jpg and press enter

Now you have a new file  in your desktop called “new.jpg” where  all your important file are encrypted :).
